Debt Reduction

Making payments …

I did something today that I haven’t done in a very long time. Something I haven’t had to do since I got out from under the burden of credit card debt over two years ago.

I had to pay my credit card bill.

I’ve explained in previous posts that the company I work for has some sort of program through Diners Club Mastercard that offers said card to its consultants. There are some perks with it – it communicates directly with our expense reporting program and we get some deals with rental car companies, etc. But it’s still a credit card and I feel at times that I’ve kind of sold out by getting one when I’ve been so adamant that I’m done with them forever.

However, I did something today that I learned from my (sordid, debt-ridden) past: I paid that puppy in full today. The debt monster is not going to catch me this time.

  1. It is very important to pay the credit card bills on time. They charge interest on the unpaid balances. Even if you are late for one day, you will be paying money to them. So I make it a habit to pay the credit cad bills in time.

  2. One day not too long ago, I did something that I told myself I would never do – opened up a store credit card. We had not had any credit card payments for a long, long time. Apparently I forgot what it was like to make payments because I forgot all about it and got dinged with a late payment charge.

    Scissors meet credit card :–)
